Year of the Rooster
In Chinese Astrology each zodiac year is associated with an animal sign. 2005 is the “Year of the Rooster”.
According to the Chinese Zodiac, those people born under the rule of the Rooster are believed to be observant, hardworking, resourceful, courageous, and very confident in themselves.
The birth years of the Lunar Rooster are 1933, 1945, 1957, 1969, 1981, 1993, 2005 and 2017.
The front side of the coin depicts a rooster standing on a rock with the sun in the background. The Chinese character for Rooster is to the right of the motif. The year of issue “2005” is engraved vertically on the left side of the coin. The fine weight and purity of “1 OZ 9999 GOLD” can be seen on the bottom below the Rooster. There is also an ornamental circle of dots that surrounds the outer edge of both sides of the coin.
The reverse side depicts the right side portrait of Queen Elizabeth II with crown. The initials “IRB” appear below the portrait and stand for artist and engraver Ian Rank-Broadley. The inscriptions around the outer edge are the name of the regent “ELIZABETH II”, the country of origin “AUSTRALIA” and the nominal value of “100 DOLLARS”.
